Building an Home Extension
Do you know someone that suffers from Alzheimer's disease? Are you exploring ways in which you can help to improve their life and hopefully their condition? Then, if you have the space, you should consider creating a garden for them. According to research, gardening can reduce the risk of dementia, of which Alzheimer's is the most common cause, by 50 percent.
And that's not the only benefit. Design your garden well, and an Alzheimer's gardener will benefit in a number of ways.
Concrete makes good retaining walls. It is a sturdy and long-lasting material that lasts for years. If you don't want a plain wall, you may have decided to go with sleeper-shaped blocks. These give your wall more of a design appeal than a flat surface.
However, while some people like the clean and understated look of plain concrete blocks, you might want a wall that makes more of a statement. What features can you use to make the wall more appealing?
In construction — especially concrete construction projects — concrete slabs would crack if the concrete is poured continuously without breaks. The reason is that concrete tends to expand and contract due to thermal ranges and variations. It is for this reason that engineers use metal keys between concrete slabs because the keys help to control shrinkage, cracking and differential movement. However, it is essential to choose the right keys because a mistake in your selection can compromise the structural integrity of the building.
Selling your home or business can sometimes feel like selling a part of your own body; it's hard, intrusive, and feels like the wrong thing to do the whole time. However for many people, it makes sense to take a step back and sell their business or to look for a change in lifestyle and move houses, so it is not always a bad thing.
When you do decide you want to sell your property you should try and maximise the profits because you only get to sell it once.
Do you intend to pull down your home for renovations? Well, demolition works should be well planned to minimise the risk of accidents. Therefore, your contractor should come up with a demolitions plan detailing all aspects of the planned exercise. Below is a short guide on what to include in a demolitions plan.
The contractor should inspect your home to determine the scope of works. During the inspection, the contractor will be on the lookout for hazards such as low-lying branches and electrical cables that might cause accidents at the site.
Hello, my name is Wendy and this is my construction blog. I do not work in the construction industry myself, but I have spent the last 7 months of my life with construction workers and contractors as they designed and built an extension to my property. I had always dreamed of extending my home so we could enlarge the kitchen and have an additional bedroom on the second-floor. My husband always objected, but when I won some money on the lotto, he couldn't stop me. The contractors were really great and I got a real insight into the industry so I decided to start this blog.
